Doctor in the Clinic :
to the tune of ”The Farmer in the Dell”
The doctor in the clinic.
The doctor in the clinic.
Hi-ho the derry-o,
The doctor in the clinic.
The doctor takes a nurse…
The nurse takes a patient…
The patient gets help…
The patient gets better…

Miss Polly Had a Dolly Rhyme

Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick.
So she phoned for the doctor to come quick, quick, quick.
The doctor came with his bag and his hat,
And knocked at the door with a rat-a-tat-tat.
He looked at the dolly and shook his head,
And said “Miss Polly, put her straight to bed.”
He wrote a paper for a pill, pill, pill.
I’ll be back in the morning with the bill, bill, bill.

The Bandage Song (from Making Learning Fun)
The basic idea is you move the bandage to different body parts.

Sing to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell:Put a bandage on my knee,
Put a bandage on my knee
Oh please take care of me
Put bandage on my knee.

Put a bandage on my head,
Put a bandage on my head
Oh please put me to bed
Put bandage on my head.


I added some silliness to this story by trying to put the bandage on the WRONG body part while asking "Is this his knee?" and everyone would yell "NO!!!" I also replaced the word "nurse" with "please" since I wasn't really mentioning nurses today.

Mr. Turkey  
I have a turkey, big and fat.
(Make a fist with one hand-thumb Out for turkey's head)
He spreads his tail and walks like that.
(Attach "tail" by spreading Out fingers of other hand and join together)
His daily corn he would not miss.
(Poke with thumb at floor)
And when he talks, it sounds like this:
Gobble Gobble Gobble

Did You Ever See A Turkey? 
Sung to: "Did you ever see a Lassie"

Did you ever see a turkey a turkey a turkey
Did you ever see a turkey go this way and that
Go this way and that way and this way and that way
Did you ever see a turkey go this way and that?

Hello Mr. Turkey 
Sung to: "If You're Happy and You Know It"

Hello, Mr. Turkey how are you?
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?
His feet go wobble, wobble
And his head goes Gobble, Gobble.
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?

 Five Little Turkeys 
Five little turkeys by the barn door,
One waddled off, then there were four.
Four little turkeys out under the tree,
One waddled off, then there were three.
Three little turkeys with nothing to do.
One waddled off, then there were two.
Two little turkeys in the noonday sun,
One waddled off, then there was one.
One little turkey - better run away!
Soon will come Thanksgiving Day.
